WYOMING - BLM Schedules Public Meetings for Interstate 90 Corridor Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office (BFO) will host two public meetings seeking public participation in the Interstate 90 (I-90) Corridor Travel Management Plan (TMP), a component of the Buffalo Resource Management Plan implementation strategy.

The I-90 Corridor TMP includes approximately 105,535 acres of BLM-administered surface accessible between the Schoonover Road (Exit 77) and Buffalo Cut-Across Road (Exit 102) exits on Interstate 90.

The goal of these efforts along the I-90 corridor is to provide recreational opportunities, designate routes that meet the needs of authorized users (i.e. grazing permitees, rights-of-way), facilitate reclamation of coal bed natural gas infrastructure, protect natural and cultural resources and improve safety.

These efforts also seeks to improve wildlife habitat and big game hunting opportunities. The travel management plan will specify which routes will be designated for motorized use by general members of the public, additional routes that will be designated only for administrative use under a permit or authorization, and routes that will be closed and reclaimed.

The public is invited to attend and participate in the following meetings:

On February 18, 2015, BRC's Don Amador, a SXS enthusiast, asked you to contact Congress because federal regulators were trying to impose their "street-oriented" view on SXS users and the industry by proposing a Rule which could have devastated SXS recreation. BRC asked you to send an email urging your representative to cosponsor H.R. 999 -- The ROV In-Depth Examination Act. Your response was awesome!  That House bill has gained a lot of support.
